How to Help Yucaipa Residents Affected by the El Dorado Fire

Spreading across 10,000 acres (as of 9/9/2020), the El Dorado Fire has caused major devastation to the community of Yucaipa and evacuation orders for more than 20,000 residents. With so many residents leaving the area, the American Red Cross has set up an evacuation center and are assessing the shelter and pets needs of individuals in need of assistance.

Presently, the fire is moving toward Riverside County where evacuation orders are also in place.

To support fire relief efforts in the Yucaipa area, Inland Empire Community Foundation is accepting donations to:

Inland Empire Disaster Relief Fund – San Bernardino County

a fund established in 2019 by the Board of Directors to provide relief funds to those affected by disasters in San Bernardino County. Donations to the fund will be used to help residents impacted by the fires in Yucaipa and surrounding communities.
